Have a cup of tea!
Well, if you want to make sure you can still get a cup of tea, then we need to leave the EU – because otherwise they’re going to ban our kettles. Well, the ‘high powered’ kettles anyway. All in the name of eco-friendliness and saving the planet.
Remember the fuss over the high powered vacuum cleaners they banned which sent us all rushing out to the shops to buy one while we still could? Remember the filament lightbulbs they banned to force us to use low powered ones that you can’t read by? Well, I do because I’ve got a cupboard full of the old ones! Remember the Euro toilet cisterns we had to swop to, replacing the leakproof British syphon system because they use less water? Except they don’t because they leak.
Well now the Fourth Reich is turning it’s Dalek-like exterminators loose on our kettles, toasters and hairdryers. So as long as you don’t mind walking around with wet hair while you’re waiting for your tea and toast, you’ll be alright.
Has nobody worked out that if you half the power consumption and have to use it for twice as long then you use the same amount of electricity? But I digress…
The point is that the EU supremos have decided to put that all on hold until after we vote to stay in because they’re afraid it might influence the neverendum. Honest. I’m really not making this shit up.
And they’ve delayed forcing us to increase VAT on children’s clothes for the time being as well, but that’s another issue…
